Has anyone had a Thrashers jersey done by EPS? I have two blank 2.0s but don't know where the best place is to get them done. Below is a pic of a jersey apparently customized by EPS, and comparing it to the actual game worn jersey below it, The letters are way too wide and the C appears to be a totally different font.2fWLJCP.jpg7655.jpg

Official team customizers as per the thread we have going here:

Atlanta Thrashers - Bobcat Athletic (2009-2011); AIS Custom Uniform (1999-2009)

You're definitely right, though, the name font is off and the numbers may be too thick as well.

Oh yeah, and Kovalchuk is such a gentleman :D

I personally haven't had any done by EPS, but I've seen a few pictures of some, and the font does look a little goofy, with some back numbers also looking a bit too elongated.  When the Edge came out, the letter font got a little skinnier, and EPS may not have accounted for that when lettering the Edges.  If you want it as exact as possible, Bobcat Athletic has the original Edge fonts.  (I don't think they have the earlier 6100 font.)  Just FYI, the kits were stacked all the way up to 2009.  Starting with the 2009/10 season, they switched to kiss-cut, right around when Bobcat took over the customization duties from AIS.

My 2014 SS Toews came back with the Edge nameplate on it.

I have a 2014 Stadium Series Devils from the Baron that I want to send in to EPS in the near future to customize as a Jagr.  I've never sent anything to them before.  I see I can fill out the form on their site and they have a Stadium Series jersey option.  They did the on-ice ones, correct?  Would I need to provide them with any information as to what I want done or do they already know and have all the materials needed?

Mine has the neon green neck tape inside with the Lextra NHL shield.  I have no idea if this would match the gamers.  Finding a picture of Jagr's gamer for that one is pretty tough.  From looking at photos of him wearing it it looks like it was a Lextra shield.

Just request that it be done to on-ice specifications with a layered kit and an Edge material nameplate. They have red Edge plates available right now.

Yes, that would be the correct jersey for the Stadium Series. Green tape, Lextra shield. Here's the one he wore for warm ups:

Jagr

Always put all of the details when sending a jersey for customization. But, as EPS did the game jerseys, if you completely forgot it's 99.9999% you'd get it the right way. I've sent them tons of Devils, all different materials, and they have always matched the nameplate to the jersey, even when I've forgotten to ask.

Thank you for the info guys. I want to send in my retro soon, but I've only taken advantage of EPS during their summer sale.

It's exactly the same, but 20% more expensive.

Side note, but $300 for a warm-up worn SS jersey... and it's Jagr?!  How in the F! Someone got a steal. 

Edit: Nevermind. I see it was issued to him but he didn't wear it. Still, not a terrible price for a GI Devils retro.

Before meigray started blowing them out, that would have been an amazing price. Now you could make the same thing for $225 ish. Even still, if you feel GI are better, then yeah, cheap. I was surprised, especially since it's from a one-off event.

Yeah, you could make one pretty easily now with all the fire sales.

Hi all. I'm hoping you can help me with a query. Did Oilers use stacked or kiss cut for 2016-17 season? Looking for close up details on gamers but haven't had any luck. What I have seen looks stacked but hoping someone can confirm.

I looked at several GIs on MG but obviously not the right ones. 

I don't waste time looking at the GI's because they don't have any wear, so for those MeiGray wouldn't bother to take closeup pics that would include parts of the numbers or letters.
